About this department!
Homeland security refers to domestic governmental actions designed to prevent, detect, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism, and also respond to natural disasters. The term became prominent in the United States following the September 11, 2001 attacks; it had been used only in limited policy circles prior to 9/11.
Homeland security is officially defined as “a concerted national effort to prevent terrorist attacks within the United States, reduce America’s vulnerability to terrorism, and minimize the damage and recover from attacks that do occur,” according to the National Strategy for Homeland Security. Because the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) includes the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) it has responsibility for preparedness, response and recovery to natural disasters as well.
“Homeland security” is generally used to refer to the broad national effort by all levels of government–federal, state, local and tribal–to protect the territory of the United States from e hazards both internal and external as well as the Department of Homeland Security itself.
“Homeland security” is also usually used to connote the civilian aspect of this effort; “homeland defense” refers to its military component, led chiefly by the US Northern Command headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colo.
The scope of homeland security includes:
Emergency preparedness and response (for both terrorism and natural disasters), including volunteer medical, police, Emergency Management and fire personnel;
Domestic intelligence activities, largely today within the FBI;
Critical infrastructure protection;
Border security, including both land and maritime borders;
Transportation security, including aviation and maritime transportation;
Detection of nuclear and radiological materials;
Research on next-generation security technologies.
